Is aderal just as dangerous as ecstacy?

Is aderal just as dangerous as ecstacy?

No: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is not just as dangerous as ecstacy. Mdma can produce confusion, depression, sleep problems, drug craving, and severe anxiety. Chronic users show impairment on cognitive or memory tasks. Studies in nonhuman primates showed exposure to mdma for 4 days caused damage to serotonin nerve terminals that was still evident 6 to 7 years later, with similar damage thought to occur in humans. ...Read more

My boyfriend took an ecstacy pill once (1 small capsule, white form) last may and never again did. Is it the cause for his +paranoiaand bad behavior?

My boyfriend took an ecstacy pill once (1 small capsule, white form) last may and never again did. Is it the cause for his +paranoiaand bad behavior?

Ecstasy: What was actually in the pill your boyfriend thought was ecstasy, could have been mdma plus whatever the maker decided to put in there. Your boyfriend does not and cannot know. Ecstasy can damage serotonin receptors in the brain. I doubt this 1 pill is the complete explanation for his difficulties, and still suggest a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation. Ill people often abuse substances too. ...Read more

I heard that girls/women who take the drug "ecstacy" have traces of it in their spinal fluid for 30 years later. If true, could it impact offspring?

I heard that girls/women who take the drug "ecstacy" have traces of it in their spinal fluid for 30 years later. If true, could it impact offspring?

No but yes....: Generally speaking, a woman is born with all of the eggs she's going to have. That means they are all exposed to everything she puts into her body, especially drugs. It has nothing to do with whether it is sequestered in her spinal fluid; it is doing its damage at the time she takes the drugs. This is one of the inherent dangers of taking drugs. ...Read more

Why does only ecstacy/mdma work as anti depressant for my depression?

Why does only ecstacy/mdma work as anti depressant for my depression?

Some possibilities:: 1. Mdma increases oxytocin levels, which may help you feel better. 2. Mdma increases prefrontal activity and inhibits the amygdala, which may improve emotional status. 3.

Can a father's drug use during conception cause birth defects - for example cocaine, opioids, depressants, stimulants, LSD/Ecstacy?

Can a father's drug use during conception cause birth defects - for example cocaine, opioids, depressants, stimulants, LSD/Ecstacy?

Major drug abuse: A history of major drug abuse can cause damage to male reproductive health - but it would not be from a single use at the actual time of conception. I'd also think hard about the maturity and responsibility toward a potential child that you might expect from a man who abuses drugs enough to cause harm to his body. Creating a Life is serious business - even more than sex (which is too!) Be safe. ...Read more

Ingesting unknown drugs casually has a very bad effect on the health and is an unwise approach to living a healthful life. ...Read more

Can you explain what are the effects of taking ecstasy.?

Ecstacy? Doubtful...: You're best bet is to ask someone who's used it. But the effects vary. It was originally used as an 'empathy' drug.

Best to just stay away from them and find other kicks, like checkers, lawn bowling and reading. ...Read more
